Okay, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard about the Mighty No. 9 live-action movie — murmurs about the script writing have been around since early 2014. However, today Legendary Digital Media, Contradiction Films, and Comcept have all formally announced the live action film. This is not Keiji Inafune’s first stroll with these groups — previously they have partnered with them to produce Dead Rising: Watchtower. For some PR-intense press releases, feel free to check out the following buzzword heavy statements by Tomas Harlan (partner at Contradiction) and Inafune (in that order).
We are thrilled to be working with the great Inafune-san on Mighty No.9 and feel so fortunate that the Legendary Digital team shares a common vision for the live action adaptation of this very special video game.
The announcement that Legendary Digital is collaborating with Contradiction and comcept on creating a live action project based on Mighty No.9 is really amazing, not only for myself and the rest of the team at comcept who worked on the game, but also for all the fans who have supported the project. This collaboration will give our creation the ability to reach people all over the world. Thanks to all of your support, we have fulfilled another one of our dreams.
Mighty No. 9 will be published by Deep Silver and will launch September 18th.
